Bush and his hollowed-out conservative supporters
Given my previous comparisons of John Roberts to the Mother of All Stealth Nominees, David Souter, and my critical discussions of Roberts’s legal work for homosexual rights and other left-liberal causes, it can be imagined how I feel about President Bush’s nomination of Roberts to fill the vacancy left on the Supreme Court by the death of Chief Justice William Rehnquist.
The reversal of conservative hopes under George W. Bush just doesn’t stop, does it? Bush the elder picked Souter to be an Associate Justice, which was bad enough. But Bush the younger, who is supposedly more conservative than dear old dad, and who repeatedly promised to nominate judges whose judicial philosophy matched that of Thomas or Scalia, has picked a Souter type to be Chief Justice. So come on, all you conservative-movement honchos! As Bush keeps piling betrayal upon betrayal, keep telling us how much you love and support him! Consummate your transformation into what you’ve already become:
We are the hollow men
